Success Story: Youth Archer Warren Collins wins Silver at NAIG!

In June, CBC did a piece titled Alberta archer shoots to win at North American Indigenous Games. When you read the article you’ll learn about Warren Collins, a 15-year-old from Cochrane, Alberta. Warren has FASD and says he wants to be an inspiration for others with disabilities.

“I want to tell them that no matter what disability you have, you can always accomplish your dreams … keep striving forward no matter the ups and downs you have”

Warren won gold at the 2016 Alberta Winter Games and he placed 28th/116 at a major competition in Las Vegas in February. Last week, he won silver at the North American Indigenous Games in Toronto! He competed in the 16 and under 3D Archery category, which tries to recreate a hunting environment in competition by having athletes shoot at life-size models of animals.

Congratulations, Warren!
